Whilst we do our best to accommodate all requests, activities are dependent upon volunteers being available. If you'd like more information or want to book an activity then please contact us.
This classroom based activity introduces primary school pupils to the idea that civil engineers work in our communities to help prevent flooding. The pupils learn about land use and sustainable urban drainage using easily sourced materials.
A fun activity which uses maths, science and teamwork skills to build a structure 4m high! Using simple materials, a P6/7 class can learn about civil engineering and work together to construct a 4m high tetrahedron - far bigger than any one of them could manage by themselves.
The Rapid Response Engineering Challenge is an interdisciplinary, problem solving activity for S1/2 pupils, which challenges them to consider the engineering assistance required to restore basic life systems after a natural disaster. It is ideally suited to Curriculum for Excellence and links well with resilience education topics.
In this short film Gavin, Julie, Mario and Erin will tell you about their careers as civil engineers. They’ll cover the wide variety of work involved, how what they do impacts climate change and tell you about the many routes into the profession.
Hear from Paul, Aaron & Josh about their careers as civil engineers. They’ll explain about some of the different branches of civil engineering and what they get out of the job.
If you're interested in a university or college course in civil engineering, it's important to make sure that the course you choose is 'accredited'. This means that it meets the Engineering Council's quality and curriculum standards.
Having accredited academic qualifications will make it easier for you to become professionally qualified as a chartered engineer (CEng), incorporated engineer (IEng), or engineering technician (EngTech).
Use our course search to find accredited courses throughout the UK.
ICE Scotland has strong links with higher education institution in the region that offers accredited engineering courses.
It's Graduates & Students Committee organises a wide range of events - many of which are free - with universities and colleges to encourage students to join in, and to develop their knowledge and skills.
ICE Scotland has close ties with the following institutions in the region:
We're looking for members who can talk passionately about the industry and are keen to work with children and young people.
UK based members can get started by simply signing up with STEM Learning for child safeguarding checks and training.
When you register with STEM Learning please make sure you select the option that allows them to share your details with us, so we can include you in our list of ICE STEM Ambassadors.
There are lots of opportunities to volunteer for some school & community engagement. If you can help out with any of these, or would like more information on volunteering, please contact Alison Ward.
Alison provides much needed support to ICE STEM volunteers who are helping to bring the exciting world of civil engineering into the classroom. She promotes civil engineering, and paths to the profession, to younger people at all ages. Alison has previously qualified and worked as both a civil engineer and technical teacher.
We provide a range of professional development training courses to help you develop further.
The ICE created seven Knowledge Networks that span the breadth of its strategic themes, where members and infrastructure experts help develop world-class insight and guidance. Knowledge Network members identify and contribute to the institution's activity, including knowledge, insights, policy and public affairs.
